Very nice groovebox
Alexbuga, 28.01.2021
The build quality is very nice, although it's plastic. Pads are nice. Nicer than MPC One actually (and more sensitive). Not like Maschine though.

You can stick a battery on the back with velcro and you have a portable solution.
The workflow is easy but if you wanna go deeper into sound editing, it takes a bit of menu diving. Luckily you can shift-scroll to jump to menu categories.

Sound editing is a bit lacking, just like the MC-101. You cannot edit the Zen Core Engine. You can adjust basic params like ADSR, Vibrato... etc.

But I assume the Zen Beats integration will allow you to use your phone as an editor.

Sampling is super easy, but I would like to see other slicing options besides auto (like: manual, grid, split, lazy chop). It will help a lot because sample editing is a bit spartan, so you better get your slices trimmed up front.

Conclusion: it's a nice box, a bit convoluted workflow, but way easier compared to an Octatrack.

Kann fast alles
Paddie, 29.01.2021
Das Verselab ist die eierlegene Wollmilchsau, die auch minimalistisch ist.

Gut gefallen hat mir:

- Das Gerät wiegt bloß etwas über ein Kilo und besitzt keinen Lüfter.

- Das zweizeilige Display ist kein Problem.

- Es ist nahezu jede Funktion einer DAW vorhanden.

- Das Realtime-Recording und das Bearbeiten von Noten hat einwandfrei funktioniert.

- Die Zen-Sounds klingen besser als jene Roland-Sounds, die schon ein paar Jahre älter sind. Und neuere Genres werden bedient.

- Die Pads sind sehr gut und haben die Einstellungen 'Pad Thres', 'Pad Trg Sens' und 'Pad Curve'. Ich hatte nur bei einem Pianoklang ein mal vereinzelte, zu hohe Velocitys.

- Die Editier-Funktionen arbeiten zwar "grobkörnig" im Vergleich zu einer DAW am PC, aber im restlichen Bereich bekommt man dafür den minimalen, ansprechenden Workflow.

- Zuweisen und Aufzeichen von Controller-Changes klappte sehr einfach und geht auch für die Pitch.

- Es gibt sieben Tracks mit jeweils frei wählbarem Tongenerator-Typ. Wenn man statt 4 Drum-Tracks den Drum-Kit-Track benutzt, hat man sechs Tracks für Instrumente übrig.

- Es gibt eine Funktion namens Mix-Down und einen Sample-Player.


Was mir nicht ganz so gut gefallen hat:

- In einem Drum-Track mit einem tonalen Preset kann man nur Oktave -5 bis +0 einstellen. Die höchste Note über die Pads ist dann bloß ein D#5. Das ist wahrscheinlich ein Bug.

- In der Bedienungsanleitung fehlen Erklärungen, wie man gewisse Funktionen findet.

Parfait pour maquette rapide et mon projet live pas du tout orienté électro.
Prise en main rapide, workflow efficace.
Pour la voix agréablement surpris captation de qualité.
Pour moi que du positif. Seul reproche pauvre en connexion

The single most important element in any style of dance music is the ‘groove’, a chemistry of rhythm for your song that can make or break its overall feel.
